“Nice outdoor area,pretty restaurant,bread is good”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

We've been to this restaurant about 4 times. Last week we ordered a glass of recommended 'daily special' wine which was noticeably from a bad bottle. I felt like our waiter or the bartender could have smelled it before serving, but our waiter was young. The manager or maitre'd came over, said 'you're right this glass is bad, I can smell it' and quickly took it away. My replacement glass was very good.
Their risottos and raviolis are good. I got a shrimp & orzo dish that was good but I would have liked more vegetables & less orzo. Bread is good. Portion size is fine to me, I'd much rather get a bit too much & choose to take it home than pay for an entree the size of an appetizer.
Our server Jordan was very nice, friendly & accommodating.

“Great Outdoor seating”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

Brio is a lightly upscale Italian restaurant. The meals dishes are not as heavily influenced by tomato based sauces and pasta as many chain places. The service can be a bit erratic.
I personally think it's a bit overpriced.
However, they are located next to a large pond and have a very lovely patio overlooking it. The pond is home to a flock of ducks who have learned to walk (waddle?) up on the patio and beg for bread.
They have a decent weekend brunch menu and if the weather is good, it's a great place to bring the kids.

“Much improved. Smaller portions. Delicious.”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Great selection of pastas and risotto, pizza and entrees. Nice wine list. Quick service. Good for dinner with colleagues. Nice not to have to take home leftovers.

“Good food BUT huge portions... kind of off-putting”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

I would recommend the watermelon martini when they serve it on their daily specials menu, and have never had a bad meal here. However, the portion size is very, very big and this is off-putting. Bigger does not mean better. Service over the holiday season is better than usual - did you get new staff?

If pasta and lots of it is your thing, you will LOVE Brio.

Brio offers very good food, good service, and a good value! Overall, for a chain, Brio does a great job!
